The 14 year old Black-ish star Marsai Martin is stepping into the new year right executive producing her very first film, Little. Marsai also thought of the script idea and brought it to Black-ish creator Kenya Barris. Little was also produced by Regina Hall and Kenya Barris.
In an interview with Essence , Martin opened up about how working with Barris helped her build the confidence to put Little in motion. “You don’t really see a 14-year-old girl creating her own stuff and actually making it into theater. That’s why you have to start working with people that will trust you and will believe that you can do it and will trust that you can carry…such a big responsibility," she told the magazine. “Kenya said I have the freedom to do whatever I want. At that time I was nervous to say what I meant or say what was on my mind. Everything was kept in, but when he said that it was very relieving—and that’s when I took the journey to make this a thing.”
We are so excited about this film and so happy that Marsai believed in herself to create such an amazing idea ! Little will be in theaters April 12, 2019.
